This work offers an overview of lubrication aspects of a typical powertrain system and examines major issues such as the development status of automotive lubricant test methods. Although much of the book is focused on powertrain systems and engine lubricants, other automotive lubricants are also covered, such as transmission oils, chassis lubricants, gear lubricants, and lubricating greases. After a section on fundamentals of automotive tribology and lubrication, Part 2 covers automotive lubricant testing, lubricant performance, and current lubricant specifications. Part 3 deals with specialized lubricant testing and future automotive applications, with chapters on materials development, tribochemistry of engine components, filters and filtration, and biobased automotive lubricants. Tung is affiliated with General Motors Research Laboratories. Totten is an industrial lubrication consultant
